<p>Hello!</p>
<p>I would like to make a fairy tales basket for my girls. I am looking to buy individual books of each fairy tale. I find their little hands prefer to pick up/leaf through single books rather then one volume book of fairy tales.</p>
<p>Please can you help me?</p>
<p>Could you link to your favourite edition of a certain fairy tale?</p>
<p>I would like to get a beautiful copy of Goldilocks And The Three Bears for my little girls third birthday at the end of march. And a copy of The Magic Porridge Pot for example.</p>
<p>My almost six year old would like a beautiful edition of Little Red Riding Hood....</p>
<p>I would love to build an collection of them this year before they get too old for fairy tales!</p>
<p>I would love the story to be well written and really beautiful illustrations!</p>
<p>Thank you,</p>
<p>Rosaleen xxx</p>

<p>I know this isn't really what you're looking for, as it's a collection of stories, but I noticed you were in the UK and wanted to recommend this version of Grimm's Fairy Tales.  The illustrations are beautiful and by Mabel Lucy Attwell;</p>

I love stuff illustrated by Fred Marcillino.

<p><strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Golilocks and The Three Bears- <em>Retold and illustrated by Jan Brett:</em></span></strong></p>

<p>Just received this book now in paperback format. The illustrations are just gorgeous and very detailed. The bears are drawn quite realistically. I know the children are going to really like this book. I love the way Jan Brett had drawn bears on all the porridge pots and the furniture in the bears house have bears carved into the wood! So sweet!</p>
<p>It is a classic retelling of the story, just lovely!</p>
